Congratulations to Glen Burnie resident Brenda Edwards and her husband, who won $50,000 on Bonus Match 5.
Lucky winner takes home $50,000 prize on Bonus Match 5
A Glen Burnie couple can finally check winning the lottery off of their bucket list after claiming a $50,000 top prize in the June 20 Bonus Match 5 drawing.
“This has always been a goal for us,” Brenda Edwards said, adding that the couple never envisioned celebrating such a success. “We play all of the games, and we have never won anything over $25.”
The couple purchased nine lines of numbers for $6, allowing the Lottery terminal to Quick Pick all of their numbers. The second line on the ticket matched all five of the Bonus Match 5 numbers drawn on June 20: 1, 27, 29, 35, and 38.
“This money will help us out definitely,” said the mother of four. The couple plans on investing in a new house as well as taking some family vacations. They’re also hoping the winning will continue.
“We will play tonight,” Brenda said. “I have already played some tickets.”
Brenda purchased her winning ticket at Westpoint Shell, located at 2056 West Street in Annapolis. For selling a top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket, the retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.
Bonus Match 5 drawings are held nightly. Five winning balls are selected from a range of 1 to 39, as well as a Bonus Ball that provides additional chances to win. Players win the $50,000 top prize if they match all five numbers. There are five other prize levels ranging from $2 to $600 for players who match two, three or four numbers and the Bonus Ball.
